Fight the Good Fight
Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We just came in from watching the 4th of July Fireworks out over the lake! It's always beautiful! Tonight the air was very heavy and damp as we got about an inch and a third of rain in early evening. It made for an interesting effect of all the smoke and fog coming off the water! It's a great time to be on the lake!
Anyhoo... today's card is made with this month's release by Our Daily Bread designs called "Not Forgotten". It's one of my most favorite patriotic sets... I love the sentiment in it that says "You are not Forgotten"! I also love these Scriptures in the set and I can see so many great uses for this set! I have paired it with a little bit of the I Pledge Allegiance single on a gray base and some K&Co Americana designer paper. I added a chain with what I was trying to look like dog tags... with the sentiment on it. I stamped with Memento on gray cs, then with a VersaMark Pen I edged the tag with silver embossing powder. The twill is from a bundle of towels I bought. I folded it in half to fit the buckle. I used the CB Distressed Stripes folder and also a QuicKutz corner die. I took the coloring of these fatigues from my hubby's uniform. The picture is colored with Prisma Pencils.
Thanks so much for looking and Happy Independence Day, United States of America!
